  • This is a nice stop. Make sure you go through the museum in the main building which is south of the white picket fence. Unlike Fort Bowie, this fort has 3 of the original buildings. AZ State Parks has done a wonderful job of placing antiques in the building and the uniforms displayed in the main museum are wonderful. This is your chance to see a nice display about the Buffalo Soldiers and the Apache Scouts who contributed so much to the AZ way of life. The Camp Verde jail is just to the west of this so take the time to walk over to it. There is also an Archeology building to the west of the jail on the corner. Another great place to stop and see historical items
  • Great historic fort with original buildings. There is an historian available for a short talk. Young kids are allowed to dress in historic clothing and even touch historic firearms. There are several weekend events held throughout the year. Those include some historic baseball games. And reenactments.
  • A rather small piece of history here. The facilities are clean, and the displays are maintained well. The museum is a treasure chest of information about the old fort and mission, and the park ranger was very informative.
  • The state as done a good job keeping up the place. Fun little stop, but small ( takes just a few minutes to check out park).
  • I had high expectations for this place...and it really disappointed me. It's definitely not worth the $7. I love historical places, but this place was so EMPTY. I'm sure it's good at one of their annual events, but I went on a regular day. There were NO other visitors there. I took my time in the museum, but it's mostly stuff to read, rather than artifacts to look at. There's three or so historical forts to walk through, but it really doesn't take long, and they're all similar to each other. I was looking forward to getting to dress to clothes from the time period, because I had read it in a bunch of Yelp reviews, but there were no signs about it or anything. Eventually, I asked an employee about it, and she was able to show me where the clothes were and allow me to put them on. So we got our pictures...but it was a little awkward that I had to ask for it.
